During the last decade there has been a substantial increase in the number of patients seeking invisible orthodontic treatment. This could be a result of the latest advancements of esthetic orthodontic techniques, such as aligner treatment. This treatment modality can fit in the modern lifestyle of patients, who are well informed that orthodontics is the basis of good dental health.
It has been proven that Invisalign aligners can deliver orthodontic forces in the required range, in order to effectively move teeth. The ClinCheck™ software, the major tool for programming orthodontic movements, has reached a point where the clinician has very precise control over the direction, magnitude and staging of the orthodontic forces delivered by the aligner. The advancement of the technique is also depicted in more demanding orthodontic movements, such as distalization and intrusion, which can be very efficiently performed with aligners alone. As far as teen treatment, the mandibular advancement feature, provides effects similar to traditional functional appliances. Regarding restorative cases, the Invisalign system brings interdisciplinary orthodontics to a whole new level, as the pre-prosthetic plan can be visualized at the very beginning of treatment, thereby providing better planning.
It is now well established that aligner treatment is an option that can address most types of malocclusion, enhancing accuracy in the treatment plan, adding efficiency to chair time and, most importantly, providing excellent treatment results.
Because of their clear material, Invisalign aligners are very well tolerated by adult patients, who find it easier to incorporate this type of orthodontic treatment into their lives, compared to traditional braces. Furthermore, aligners are removable and thus allow better oral hygiene; this is of ultimate importance in patients with a predisposition to periodontal problems.
